Pointless, useless and worthless

"Whether you're in it for the horror, the kitsch, the breasts or the occult content, it's a pure and simple waste of money. Don't bother."
Good God ...

"How do lousy movies like these get made? The guy who said all the actors were "no-names," wasn't kidding. Witchcraft 2 isn't much better. Maybe I'm just self-destructive. I like to watch awful movies just so I can complain about them later. Hey, if that's your thing, then by all means plunk your money down, but if it's not ... then I suggest you save it for a carton of milk."
Only Witchcraft could make me watch this again

"After enduring this "classic" I was overcome with the urge to flee, as if such future movie experiences were avoidable as a result of previous insufferable misjudgments. This film was wowingly poor. Not unimpressive, nor mediocre, but just POOR. While I have a special place in my heart for most circa-1980's horror series part ones, this little piece of Hell scarred me with boredom. So, here's why you should take this to heart and NOT EVER WATCH THIS...

When you think of a 1980's horror films what pops in your head first? Gore? Cheap scares provoked by sudden scene changes and loud sound effects? Gratuitous nudity? You'll find none of these things here. Not only did this movie suffer a complete lack of even remotely eerie scenes, the producers didn't even have the common decency to force some fledgling actress bare her bosom, butt, or scantily clad body. No kids are doing drugs or having premarital sex either--so, by common law of horror, no one deserves to die in this movie! (And almost no one does.)

The greatest gore effect involves two robed figures hovering over what could only be described as roadkill in a birdbath. The figures chant some incomprehensible syllables while kneading mashed organs in their hands and then, GASP, putting it in their mouths. This scene made me tremble no more than when I eat a poorly prepared meatloaf. The other effects, if we're elevating them to such a name, were limited to sketchy visions through a mirror that was probably meant to feel like a spooky oracle.

I suppose I could address the plot. Scene One, some people are killed. All the rest of the scenes, those people were somehow reincarnated into a mother and son (though lovers in scene one) who are obsessed with the son's new child. Why? Well, clearly that child is a reincarnation of their unborn child when they were burnt at the stake and, is the "child of the devil" as well. Far from compelling.

So we have a lame plot festooned with poor attempts at effects, a total absence of scares, some unexplained motives, no nudity (for those of you who care), and an unsatisfying ending. Though, to the ending's credit, it was no more disappointing than the rest of the movie. In fact, for the first time during the movie I was happy when it ended.
